Did the Jurassic Park franchise ruin the public's perception on science for decades?

Did the Jurassic Park franchise ruin the public's perception on science for decades? Even current movies still don't use scientifically accurate or feathered dinosaurs. The franchise only cares about making movie monsters when dinosaurs were and are just animals.

    Reminder that is both book and movie the dinosaurs are less dinosaurs and more mutant test tube abominations in the rough shape of dinosaurs, with aberrant behavior and unnatural physical characteristics. Malcolm flat out lampshades this in the book. Another character within Ingen talked about how they were considering reengineering dinos to be slower and clumsier to fit public perception... the same thing you're blaming JP for.
    Also, why is it SO important for fictional or forebear dinosaurs to not just be moved on from but discredited and condemned? Why is the tone of voice for modern paleo so desperate and so authoritarian? This isn't a Jaws situation where a dumb movie gets several hundred billion sharks pointlessly slaughtered. If people think some extinct animals were something that isn't in line with what rock sifters THINK they were like, who gives a fricking frick?
    What a stupid, petty, and unpalatable crusade. No wonder modern paleo is seen in the same light as those modern revisionists trying to paint every important person/civilization as all being Blacks... not helped by the people involved looking and talking and thinking the exact same way as those.

    scientific accuracy is a moving target that changes faster then movies can be made

    scientific accuracy is a misunderstanding of science since science is a conversation between contradictory interpretations with no conclusive way to judge which one is right.

    feathers are much harder to animate than scales, so adding them in would result in some animals that look fairly realistic alongside others that look like cheap cartoons.

    Realism wasn't ever really the point of the movies. When used, it was either to portray animals in unexpected ways, or to portray size.

    the public's perception of science isn't based on dinosaurs.

    the public's perception of science doesn't matter.

    it's just a movie. Entertainment. Fiction.

        Each sentence is a separate point. I could have numbered them for the morons out there, but I took the risk that we have some people of average or better intelligence here. Sadly I was disappointed. You guys are idiots.

          All sentences are seperate points. That's why they're called 'sentences'. You organize separate but related sentences into 'paragraphs'. When a new line of thinking begins, that's when it is appropriate to begin a new paragraph.

          ESL or moron. Call it.

    people who say dinosaurs had feathers are moronic.
    this gets built up, then confirmed as true, then later redacted. its on a 6 year cycle.
    the truth is..........only gays think dino's had feathers.

      Yes, these movies ruined everything.

      They ruined all the generations that came after the one that begged their parents to buy all the crap toys, further conditioned kids like me into consumerism (Even more than Star Wars 3-6?),

      it's a bunch of frick,
      but probably just as bad as all the other shit that led to more plastic waste and etc (Where did all the toys go?),

      I will never see a velocirapter as like a 3 or 4 foot tall murder turkey that I could tell myself "Yeah I could one on in a fight I guess.".

      Because my mental image will never not be specifically the 6'+ tall demon lizards from the first or second movie.

      And I can recognize that,
      but a lot of people can't and they're always gonna b***h like "noooo you can't just say it was small and had feathers and it wasn't just like the things from the movies (that I had toys of and became emotionally bonded to)!" like

      Everybody working in the field and with phds and are literal actual certified geologists and paleotologist and they're not just actors on the discovery channel reading a script,

      They can be Dead Fricking Wrong,

      but they're having to defend themselves against the fanbase of some Steven Spielberg movie.

        No we're not. If we decide to deboonk a public misconception that's our choice. Not a requirement of the job.

        What the public thinks of dinosaurs has essentially no impact on science. Paleontologists spend most of their time relating to dinosaurs in ways the public cannot. Not only can they not relate to them as scientists do, they can't even understand the differences. The public relates to dinosaurs as once-living animals. Scientists relate to them primarily as bits of rock that preserve some form of their bone fragments. These are vastly different views of dinosaurs.

    I think it has really derailed most of the public's perception of de-extinction in general, even if it's bringing back animals that humans directly pushed to exciton like Tasmanian Tigers or Dodos there's always someone saying "aren't there like six movies about why bringing back extinct animals is a bad idea" and act like they said something profound, when all they did was disregard the Malcom and Hammond's conversation, because I believe if Hammond had instead chosen to clone Condors instead of Dino's or animals that went extinct because of the building of a dam or deforestation then Malcom would've been more on board with de-extinction.

    I fail to comprehend how these movies still are getting made. I can't imagine just how moronic the consoomer base for them must be to spend even a single penny on any of them. Utter cringe shit.
